PLEASE HELP ME
Have you located the document?
Patient was admitted on 8/14 and discharged on 8/16.
There are plenty of meds each day, and on discharge from which you can choose.
Your teacher's instructions are to print out all (24) pages so you can study.
Most of the information on drugs are available from the "Physician's Desk Reference". You will need to know the abbreviations for the dosage, etc.
Print out the document and give it a try.
If you don't have access to the document already, try this link:
I already got that but I don't understand it. These are the question that I need to answer can you help me please....
* Drug Name and Dosage (this patient)
* Related Patient Diagnosis (this patient)
* Administration (this patient)
* Other Names for the Drug (per the Physician's Desk Reference)
* Adverse Reactions/Side Effects (per the Physician's Desk Reference)
* Contraindications (per the Physician's Desk Reference)
You're expected to:
"identify the patient's diagnosis(es) and course of treatment. Identify three medications received by the patient. Be sure to print out the documents so you can study them carefully. "
I suggest you read through all 24 pages, so you would be familiar with how a medical file is structured, where to find what information, etc.
The pt's history, treatment plan, diagnosis, medications, etc. are all recorded in the file.
After the first reading, then you can start looking for information required by your teacher.
Look for pt's diagnosis on discharge, as well as the meds. His DX has a principal and secondary component. The meds all treat one or the other problems.
Note: the meds are shown on a different page than the final DX. That's why it is a good idea to read through the whole document, even if there are portions that you don't understand, you'll know where they are when you need them.
If you have problems after the reading, post again.
I read it over and over. Can you help me step by step please. I can even give you my e-mail address. Please I really need help and it worth 50 pts.
I have difficulty accessing the document at this moment, but I remember vaguely that the meds and DX are on pages 5 and 17.
Study the principal and secondary diagnostics, the meds.
Do you have access to physician's desk reference 2011 for the meds?
Which med treats which condition should be quite clear once you look up the med. Preferable choose from the long list at least one med that treats one condition. If I remember right, there were glaucoma, CHF (congestive heart failure), COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), and a couple of other things.
